Transportation

Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each church group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) for the entire mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small groups to the work site each day, so 12-passenger vans or mini-vans are preferred. Cars do not facilitate the transportation of an entire small group in one vehicle, so please do not bring them. If you wish to bring a bus, please check with the Host Team to see if this is acceptable before you make arrangements. If your group is unable to provide van transportation, please have a youth leader call Youth Unlimited to discuss options and additional charges.

Nearest Airport

San Luis Valley Regional Airport (ALS) is located in Alamosa, but is very small. Denver International Airport (DEN) is located 4 hours north of Alamosa, Albuquerque International Sunport Airport (ABQ) is located 3.5 hours south of Alamosa. Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received written confirmation from Youth Unlimited that you have been placed at this site.

Site Description

Alamosa is the “Land of Cool Sunshine” 7,600 feet above sea level in Southern Colorado, in the San Luis Valley. We’re surrounded by the majestic Rocky Mountains that contain peaks over 14,00 feet and contains the highest desert mountain valley in the world. This is a beautiful place to serve others, but it also has some of the poorest counties in the country. Our church family and host team are passionate about serving others! As a SERVE Host Team, we are excited to see young people putting their faith into action!

Facilities

The girls will be sleeping in a community center (2 big rooms), the boys will be staying at the church in the various classrooms. There is no A/C because it is Alamosa, CO! (Just open the windows at night and it will be cooler than A/C)! The showers will be in the town of Alamosa at a Rec. center.

Day Away

Our day away will be spent at the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Sand Dunes Swimming Pool.

*Special Note* We are at an elevation of 7,544 so PLEASE be prepared to drink lots of water while you are here and apply sunscreen often as you will get sunburned easily.
